Don't you people get it?

Last edited Mon Apr 13, 2020, 03:44 PM - Edit history (5)

Don't you people get it? What is the matter with you? Must I spell it out?

1. Anyone who is politicizing this crisis is anti-American. Criticizing the president at this time is horrible. People who love this country never criticize the president.

2. The president is doing the best job he can! This is a tough job! Give him a break!

3. Two million people would have died but he single-handedly is keeping the numbers down with all his beautiful and perfect decision making!

4. He is keeping the numbers down in spite of the fact that all the nurses on the front lines are stealing masks from their hospitals and selling them on ebay.

5. Anyway it's all hype from the fake news media and this whole thing is nothing more than the flu and the whole thing was created by the fake news media to destroy the economy so trump doesn't get re-elected.

6. Those videos of people dying in hospital waiting rooms because there aren't enough beds, those are fake too. actors. those body bags are filled with all those missing masks... it's the only way they could figure to get them out of the hospital without people noticing. I heard they are being dug up right after the photo up and that's how they end up on ebay.

7. He could have could have kept the death count down to zero, but, it's Obama's fault. and Hillary's. And by the way Hillary should be in prison.

8. It's called the China Virus. It came from China. It's their fault. And Obama's.

9. Of course he can't listen to scientists or advisers. they are all from the Deep State and can't be trusted. they're in on it with the media. The only thing we can trust is our president's brain.

10. Before this happened we had the best economy EVER. Better than any time in history, better than any other country, ever. Yes, ever. that's what people are saying anyway. actually it was probably better than any other civilization in the universe, ever. it would be impossible for any society to have an economy that was going as beautifully and perfectly as ours was, and it was all from the perfect changes that he made. Never mind that farmer's bankruptcies were at an all-time high, and nearly half the population was living from paycheck to paycheck, and income disparity was at an all-time high. The stock market was great and unemployement was low. what else matters? best economy ever! oh and forget that the deficit was skyrocketing before this happened, or that stock market rose just as much during Obama. Fake news.

11. Voting my mail is a horrible idea. People will have huge parties filling out fake ballots and sending them in. Only healthy people should be allowed to vote anyway. I mean, those sick people are going to die anyway, so do they really care who the next president is?

12. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Would you like some kool aid?

Don't you people get it? what is the matter with you?

(note about #1: It's not OK to criticize the president, unless they are black or they faked their birth certificate. then it's OK. Duh...)

If we needed the horseshit shoveled out of the stalls. However, an intelligent adult in the White house would be a pleasant change.

A Poe rating of five of a possible six.

Might want to toss a sarcasm tag in, though --- there are some awfully touchy people banging alert buttons.

The evil genius of the terms fake news and liberal media is that it allows 38% of the US population to believe nonsense and ignore anything that conflicts with the nonsense.

Who didn't know that? Any "responsible" citizen would know all of that if they were conscientious people and keeping up with the "truth" on Faux Spews.

I will make a small donation for the cleaning supplies you will need to get the stench of sulfur out of your office furniture.

Never mind that it causes extremely harmful and potentially fatal side effects, it's endorsed by the president!

i have found it to be interesting to post stuff like this on facebook. there are always a few people who are shocked that i could actually think like that. and I get into a nice discussion with them. i think sarcasm can be very powerful, especially when you are just repeating what people are actually saying, just to show how utterly stupid it is.
if you throw the horseshit right back in their face, it opens some eyes.
